Kanye West is once again looking to change the fashion game with his latest installment of Yeezy shoes. The rapper turned fashion designed has released some questionable footwear designs under his Adidas and Yeezy line, somehow making dad shoes cool. That’s the power of Yeezy. Now West is once again testing his influence with his latest pair of Yeezy shoes, this time with the foam runner. It’s a Croc.
Set to be released in 2020, West has now unveiled a first look at his latest creation, a slip on shoe in all white that is made of foam. We’re told they’re great for gardening and trips to the grocery store. We kid. Sorta. The one-piece sneakers (are we calling foam shoes sneakers?) feature lattice details and a midsole that is similar to the adidas Yeezy Boost 700, which start around $260. West has yet to announce the price tag of his newest model of Yeezys, but he’s not one for bargain shopping, so expect a big number even though they’re foam and look like the Crocs you wear to walk the dog.

West’s new shoes have been met with surprise on Twitter, which is a nice way of saying people are making fun of them but will probably buy them once they hit store shelves. They are ridiculous, but they do look comfortable, right? The responses have been equal parts savage and hilarious, though we have a feeling that Kanye isn’t scrolling through his feed and laughing. He doesn’t strike us as a ha-ha guy.
While the shoe’s official name is Yeezy Foam Runner, they’ve already been dubbed Yeezy Crocs, because facts.

Others think they’ve figured out the real reason West has tried so hard to make dad sneakers and now Crocs an acceptable choice of footwear in society.

If you want all the comfort of a Croc and the sign off by a celebrity but don’t want to lose a car payment on a new pair of Yeezys, may we recommend simply buying actual Crocs?
Really, it’s much more financially responsible and celebs love them!
